It's a diaper dandy of a deal
Dick-Vitale-Calls-Virginia-

In hot contract extension news, 78 year old Dick Vitale added another year to his contract with ESPN.  The "worldwide leader in sports" announced the extension along with a message from Dickie V himself.

“ESPN has been family to me and I am honored that they want me to continue being a contributor on our college basketball team,” Vitale said. “ESPN has provided me a forum that has turned my dreams to reality. I feel young at heart. I said once, and I will say it again – my goal is to be the first in broadcasting to open a hoops game at 100 years old saying “This is Awesome, Baby!’ with a capital A.”

“Dick’s commitment and passion towards college basketball and towards ESPN for the past 39 years has been unmatched,” said Lee Fitting, ESPN vice president of college sports. “It’s tough to imagine that there has been a greater ambassador for the game of college basketball, and we are thrilled to have Dick on our air for years to come.”  

The hall of famer is entering his 40th year with the company.  The new deal keeps Vitale around until the 2020-21 season.   It was a good thing too, you would hate to see him take his walker over to CBS Sports in free agency.  Our college basketball experience will never be the same when he's gone.
